TPC charge distribution fit to power law

For many years, we have used the following distribution to model space charge in the TPC, taken from StRoot/StDbUtilities/StMagUtilities.cxx:

UU193

 Cuts used:

FGT Event Display screenshots

 Status Update:  The FGT geometry and pedistal values are now being read from the common database.  Everything still works just fine.
